"Up Close With Val" and Happy Saturday!

Happy Saturday everyone!  It is finally sunny in my town.  Wow!  It has been awhile since I have seen and felt the sun and it feels pretty darn good.  I feel like I have to explain something from my last post.  I wasn't actually born with six fingers.  I was born with eleven.  I was born with six fingers on my left hand.  It was surgically removed when I was an infant.  The only proof I have of this is a baby picture of me with an inconspicuous black thread tied around the extra finger.  You can't see the finger, only the thread.  They tried to kill the blood supply to the finger to get rid of it first.  It didn't work so they surgically removed it next.  Now I just have a tiny wart-like nerve-ending to prove that I had a finger there.  I now have ten fingers.  Not six.  That was kind of a gross way of telling you how they tried to get rid of that finger.  Sorry to the weak-stomached.  I have a new "Up Close With Val".  I, again, think this one is easy.  Probably because I played around with the picture a lot.  If you know what it is, put your guess in an email or the comment's section.  I will let anyone who has a correct guess know!  I will post the correct guesser tomorrow or the next day!  Have fun!

                     

Oh, Chelsea is home!  I get two hours with her!!  Yay!  She promised!  She is asking me what I want to do and that is very special so I am getting off!!!  Bye now!!...

  3. Well it could be a ball, a marble or the moon but perhaps it is an eye.  Six fingers my dear, like Anne Boleyn so if you still had your finger and I still had my costume that appeared on my journal we would fit perfectly lol.  Hope you have fun with Chelsea!!!  God bless you xxxxxx

  11. The upclose has me baffled.  I thought at first it was an eye but, I don't think so.  I can't think of what it could be.  I'll be waiting the answer.  Enjoy your weekend.

  15. Val, Your "extra finger" was basically a small finger end, with a ligament (or very soft bone tissue) and with a perfectly shaped very tiny fingernail, all  growing out of your little finger on the side.  There is a good chance that if was caused by some of your Pennsylvania- Dutch genes.  The PA-Dutch married near-relatives in the many valleys and hollows of the Appalachians and Alleghenys of PA and have a-higher-than-average incidence of six finger anomalies and, also, a disproportionately higher incidence of leg thigh "shortness." ( I read this in the magazine section of the Washington Post many years ago.) And as you know, I have the leg thigh "shortness."

  17. Val, I don't think I would have guessed that as an eye.  I think I would have guessed it as something out in space, lol. -Krissy
